Sorry for the flood of images, but just working these up.
I usually do not like bird on a stick images, but I think I changed my mind.
Passed this one over on the first go through. Wind picked up for a moment and blew some feathers around, bird turned out of the wind.
Bingo.
Thought a tighter crop would work here.
This is rolling off the printer as I type-
Last one tonight, I promise.
Thanks

Wow! Dramatic lighting, especially of the long, fine feathers! And dramatic sharpness of the head/eye, long feathers and feet. Really looks more like fine art as opposed to "just" a photograph.

Thanks again to everyone. I do try to capture these birds as a fine art portrait when I can. I wander around looking for what is essentially studio lighting on a stick. Often light streaming through the trees, with water acting like a reflector below the stick. Then wait, and hope something lands there. I have this image printed 20x20" on a metallic paper. It really looks good.
Thanks again for the support and thoughts/guidance. It helps me learn how others see.
